Kara Telfer is the daughter of Jim and Angie Jensen and calls Underwood, IA home. She is a 2009 graduate of Underwood High School where she was a member of jazz band, color guard, as well as the basketball, track, and cross country teams. She was a four-time state qualifier in cross country and track and a Drake Relays qualifier in 2009. She is currently a senior at Creighton University where she is majoring in biology. At Creighton she serves as the secretary of the pre-vet club and has her sights set on pursuing a Doctor of Veterinary Science degree upon graduation.
Outside of school Kara has been active showing horses with the Arabian Horse Society of Iowa and local saddle club gaming events. She enjoys camping and trail riding with her family and is a member of the Ride and Tie Association. In 2009 she reigned as Miss United Rodeo Association.
When she's not riding or studying she enjoys running, playing the piano and spending time with her supportive family. Kara looks forward to her year as Miss Rodeo Iowa 2013 and hopes to share her passion for horses and rodeo in order to give back to the horse industry and agricultural community which she believes shaped her into who she is today.
